Red roses are perfect for the girly-girl who has expensive taste and prefers shopping at designer boutiques rather than fast-fashion stores. Not only are red roses utterly romantic, but the woman who loves them is typically very passionate about fashion, too. She’s a dreamer, and her style reflects that. If you’re walking down the aisle this spring, why not accessorize your white wedding dress with a ravishing red rose floral crown fit for a princess? An all-over red rose-printed lace dress is another elegant option for a dinner party or a night out on the town with the girls. For daytime, get all glammed up in a red rose-embellished flouncy skirt.

Tulips are elegant, timeless and come in a wide variety of colors. They’re best suited for the sophisticated woman with a classic sense of style whose diverse wardrobe has come to be admired by her peers. After all, tulips are associated with fame. To get your floral fix this season, we suggest investing in a silky tulip print scarf that can be paired with any solid-colored tee or top for years to come. Not into prints and patterns? Then show off your sexy stems in a tasteful tulip-shaped skirt or dress. This silhouette is a popular (and flattering) pick for spring.

If you can’t get enough of bold, bright fashion and outfits that really pop, then the sunflower is definitely your perfect match. It’s perky, playful and puts a smile on people’s faces, much as your style does. For springtime, go loud in brilliant yellow bathing suits, neon crop tops and colorful denim pants and jackets. If yellow isn’t exactly your favorite color, you can still mix things up with chic sunflower-shaped jewelry. Of course, electric yellow sunglasses are a no-brainer.

Exotic, tropical and highly coveted, orchids are a lot like today’s in-demand fashion bloggers: They have the innate ability to captivate a wide audience with their rare beauty and charm. If you’re planning a tropical vacay this spring, don’t forget to pack an eye-catching orchid-print bikini that’s sure to turn heads on the beach. Orchid drop earrings are an elegant touch for a fancy spring soiree, while strappy pastel lavender sandals in Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year, are another must-have.
